It’s been an exhausting week, I only got home at 3am last night from working at the night festival. I had to drag myself out of bed because there is still so much to do. Before I get started on any work, I usually spend the first waking hours hunting for some inspiration. Today, I chanced upon two stores which I can’t believe I haven’t seen earlier on!
I really love handcrafted goods that are fun to have, especially if it’s something I can totally imagine the maker sitting in their room and taking their time to craft it out. Tactile craft goods are really my calling!
Benu’s leather jewellery are absolutely cute and yet so wearable! I am literally going bananas over the banana necklace! What I love about Benu’s new collection is the striking colour palette, it’s got the classy gold and a pop of playful bright colours. It’s easy to see this paired with most outfits. I like how she’s not going over the top and keeping it simple!
I found I am Acrylic in my email through the Supermarket Sarah mailing list, which everyone should check out! They curate a ton of awesome goods from the most amazing creatives! I am Acrylic make very quirky goods and hand cuts all of their work, mostly with a fretsaw! It has been ages since I touched a fretsaw, most Singaporeans would remember using it to make cut out acrylic bowls.
I am in love with their landscape pieces – a house in the mountains, along the seaside and on a desert island! I always have so much respect for people that work with small things as it’s incredibly tedious and you know they really love what they do or they wouldn’t be doing it! Xo.
